We're looking for a Veterinary Manager (Companion Animals).

Could this be you? Or do you know an ideal candidate?

This is a permanent/full-time position.

The New Zealand Veterinary Association acts on behalf of members to ensure that member wellbeing, advocacy, education and veterinary standards are well supported. Increasing our veterinary services to members is a continued focus for the NZVA.

We welcome applications from candidates who have current experience in a companion animal setting and who are seeking to broaden both their veterinary and business knowledge.

This role is not for the faint-hearted and is ideally suited to a high performer with a credible background in ‘all things’ companion animal and who is able to confidently navigate business processes and competing priorities.

The objectives of the Veterinary Manager (Companion Animals) are to:

  • support key companion animal welfare leadership on behalf of the NZVA and wider profession
  • ensure key stakeholder engagement which represents companion animal veterinarian’s interests in relevant welfare and legislative matters
  • provide personal, professional and technical support to NZVA members
  • support the promotion of quality and professional standards that guide the future of service delivery for companion animal veterinarians
  • promote and educate the profession and the public on the benefits of pet health insurance
  • support the leadership of companion animal health in New Zealand.

The successful candidate will report to the NZVA Chief Veterinary Officer, although contributions to, and liaison with the NZVA’s Companion Animal Veterinarians special interest branch make up a significant part of this role.

Please see the position description for this role.

Applications close: 5pm, 1 July 2019.
